A nice hostel with an excellent location in Puerto Iguazu, a short walk downhill from the bus terminal. Nice rear patio with a swimming pool. The kitchen was understocked (I couldn't find bowls or salt). No bath mats or hand towels in the shared bathrooms (although this seems to be the norm in Argentina). The staff were very good, especially Diego :) he was awesome! Overall a good hostel.
I met amazing people at the hostel! That was a big positive. But the 9 bed mixed dorm's facilities were very poor. The toilets were leaking and one of the onsuit bathroom was very smelly. The kitchen is dirty in my opinion and the cabinets need a good clean. Although I stayed there 2 nights I would choose elsewhere if I was to visit again. But the location close to the bus station and all restaurants were great!
Very good hostel, ideal for that all important Iguazu trip (and, if you have to choose, I'd recommend the Argentinian side). Good wifi (in every dorm!), own plugs, kitchen a bit small but functional. Pool is fine if you've been on the road for more than a few days (and welcome in that heat). There was a bit of a problem with a leaky toilet (the cistern, not anything gross), sure that's easy to fix :) Oh and fab, super friendly and helpful staff. Very good breakfast
Lovely hostel with a great atmosphere, next door is a great cheap restaurant and 3 minute walk to the bus station. Nice cool rooms and big bathrooms. The pool is a bonus too!! Very refreshing after a hot day at the falls. Thanks for a great stay!
very friendly staff and nice location. Unfortunately a bit noisy due to tree cutting. The beds are far to soft and new matresses would do wonders.

Great hostel. The staff gives you a warm welcome and a lot of information about visiting the waterfalls and about possible walks. Especially Diego is a super friendly and helpfull guy, and his English is very good. The atmosphere in het hostel is great, easy to meet other travellers. It's a clean place.The only minus is the very old equipment in the kitchen. But Diego told me that they are building a new hostel 2 blocks away. The new place will open next year.
Rooms a bit dark. Breakfast was good and the common area was nice. Staff was great.
very close to bus terminal, 9 bed dorm was clean and spacious, with two showers ensuite! average breakfast but generally speaking had a good stay. would recommend to everyone
We stayed here for 2 nights to visit the falls. One of the staff was very helpful the other not so much. we had a little room right off the common area with the only window into the front desk or common area which was a little strange. Breakfast was really unusual - they served us vanilla or chocolate cake and oranges! Weird. The pool is small but nice- what out for mozzies!
We stayed for three nights at Timb Posada and whilst the rooms could be better, the staff were extremely helpful and the little garden and kitchen area is nice. The location is also handy for the bus station.
we had a very nice stay!!!! thanks a lot Diego, Paola and Alejandra!!!!! See you soon!!!!! :))))
Air con not working for half the night Pool not clean Staff giving wrong information I cancelled my second night and would not stay there again

good hostel. breakfast was also good. very close to the bus terminal which go to iguazu falls and any other place nearby.
Security was great -- luggage check room was locked. Owners are a very nice and friendly couple. They don't speak English though if that's something you need. My only real complaint is that prices were noticeably higher than other hostels nearby, but they did include eggs with their breakfast which most places don't do.
Perfect location very close to the bus station and to some shops, very nice staff that warmly welcomes you when you arrive after a long night trip and immediately offers you a bath. And a very nice yard!
Do something about the mosquitoes in the common area next to the pool!! Apparently all the mosquitoes from Iguazú gathered in that spot...other than that, everything else was perfect.
Staff were so friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious!! Location was great as it was a few minute walk away from the bus station so easy to get to the falls. Lots of mozzies around but I imagine it's the same at any hostel near the falls.
The location is good, close to the bus station to get to the Iguazu national park, which was my main reason to come here. Friendly staff though not very good at English. The facilities was very basic and is due a refurbishment. Has a pool but is dirty and one can't use it. Toilets did not work properly but good showers. Dark rooms and the room smelled of mold.
I stayed in Timbo for 3 nights in a 9 beds dorm, and I really liked it. There were 2 bathrooms in the dorm, cleaned every day, as well as the dorm. We all have large lockers. The hostel also furnished filtrated water, which is a nice detail. The breakfast is really nice, with a piece of cake, bread, dulce de leche and butter, a choice of hot beverages, and fresh orange juice. You can also cook yourself in the large kitchen. However, the swimming pool is really tiny and not really clean.
Perfectly located just 2 minutes walk from the bus station, very friendly staff, good breakfast etc. Would recommend.
